    Last weekend I drank 0 beer, rum and fanta fruit twist zero instead. The week has been good! Graph dropping progressively.

    However:
    Chip shop last night
    All you can eat pizza for lunch today
    Wagamamas tonight
    BBQ tomorrow

    Birthday weekend - getting lean can do one for a couple (four) days

    There's a fair bit in the thread about people on keto diets, have a read/search.

    As a beginner, I thought it was great. Especially over winter when riding less

    Does anyone have a good resources on beginner training? As in, I'm okay on a bike, can do longer rides and very hilly (2000 m +) rides, but want to maybe add some structure. British cycling's improver plan seems very gentle, at least at first. Should I be looking at that and basically just ramping into it with the program?
    Whenever I post something like this people ask my goals so: I'm gonna try TT this year and basically want to improve all-around. I enjoy hills a lot.

    Thanks @hippy but bank = 0 atm. Ultegra 6650 is a decent shout, but would need nicer chainrings. Surprised no-one has suggested tiagra 4600 to be honest, very similar crank to 7800

    They're lovely aren't they? Only 'nice' bit of bike kit I own really, apart from frames

    I don't neccessarily want better, smaller is the aim of the game! I have no need for 53t and have a lot of want for 34t.

    Trickle upgrade to 6800 would be a shout, it really does seem like it's hard to beat shimano for quality:price.

    I don't know if I ever want to go back to square taper. Removed my track cranks last night and it's such a pain!

    How long can Yates hold the form? Do stage-winning efforts early(ish) on in a grand tour sap energy later on? Interesting racing to come!
